I took an aesthetics class in college. One of the assignments was to package a piece of fruit in an innovative way. I bought a miniature pineapple, cut off the flower, and screwed the fuse, spoon, and pin from a dummy hand grenade into the top. I got an A.

But then, I think, so did everyone else.

Chris Myles made these COMBUSTIBLE LEMONS MODEL 0419 not from real fruit, but from that tacky fake plastic stuff you can buy at the craft store. Which, in this context, actually becomes pretty awesome. They are apparently just as useless as my aesthetics class, but also just as much fun. [via Boing Boing]
